It has since been performed and/or recorded by many artists and groups including Lunasa, Patrick Street, Kevin Burke & Micheal Ó Domhnaill, The Tannahil Weavers and Hamish Moore & Dick Lee.



Years after Grey Larsen wrote this tune, a version of it evolved in Brittany, where it was adapted to fit the range of the Highland bagpipes. That version is often referred to as “Jig Brest St. Marc” and has become part of the standard repertoire for Highland bagpipes as well  as fiddlers of Scottish leanings. That is the version that was recorded by The Tannahill Weavers and many other artists.
